The following additional text was added to the Packaging/Guidelines
Binary Firmware section:

The License tag for any firmware that disallows modification should be
set to:
      "Redistributable, no modification permitted"

Firmware packages should be named <foo>-firmware, where <foo> is the 
driver or other hardware component that the firmware is for.

This change was approved by the Fedora Packaging Committee and ratified
